This is the first of our new dos Coogs series. Two guys breaking down games, discussing stats, and answering questions. Ryan Monceaux and former UH athlete Brad Towns are the dos.
Today, the guys have a conversation on how to watch basketball. Ryan isn’t a basketball expert while Towns played high school and select ball through high school (he’s still a hoops junkie). Some times, they reach the same conclusions but get there in very different ways.
Monceaux: You played basketball growing up. And you were pretty good, right?
Towns: Yeah. I was a travel-team basketball player through high school at Mesquite Poteet. I loved playing the game. I loved playing baseball, and it got me to UH and the Southwest Conference, but basketball was my passion.
Monceaux: I was cut from a 5-6 year old team in Iowa, Louisiana. And my dad was the coach!
Towns: I was always a natural baseball player. For some reason I was always pretty good from the time I first picked up a stick and hit rocks in the back yard. But basketball was a different story. I wasn’t all that good at the beginning and I had to really work to become competent and develop skill at the game.
Monceaux: Because you’re slow.
Towns: Yeah, I wasn’t quick or fast and I couldn’t jump.
Monceaux: That’s what they said my problem was, too.
